Dare to Care or Ecofeminist Power of Change [EN/PL] 

July 16, 2022 from 15:30 am to 17:00 am


This session marks the launch of the Polish translation of “Dare to Care. Ecofeminism as a Source of Inspiration.” Drawing from ecofeminists worldwide, and with the Covid and climate crisis acutely present, the authors explore links between the exploitation of people and nature, and wonder how conceptions of CARE can form a new starting point for politics and economics.

In this session, we will learn more about their conclusions, before opening up to a roundtable discussion of the role and power of ecofeminist approaches to green activism and the movement today.
